How to order a print book when Hamersly has the ebook

You may have noticed a lot of ebooks popping up in the library’s catalog–we have over 80,000 now! While they are often convenient and just what you need, other times you really want the printed material.

Search for the book in the Summit catalog. Once you’ve verified the title and author, check the Edition/Format field.  If it says eBook, click on ‘View all editions and formats.’ Select an alternate edition or format

Now find the Book editions (meaning it’s a physical item, not digital).  Choose the one from the Summit collection if possible. 

Continue by using the  Request Summit Item or the Request from interlibrary loan buttons, and signing in.  Before completing the request, make sure to indicate that you want only this edition.  This confirms to library staff that you have seen the ebook we have and you want the physical copy.
